Personal injury claims payout guide

To be able to work out how much you may be able to claim for personal injury, the following aspects of your claim need to be taken into account:

  • The type of injury you have suffered
  • The severity of the injury
  • How long your rehabilitation takes
  • The psychological effects of the injury
  • Any loss of earnings you incurred because of the injury

 

Personal injury claims payouts are awarded as a form of redress –  a payment that is made with the intention of putting the claimant back into the position they would have been had they never been injured.

Personal injury settlement amounts are calculated by assessing the levels of pain and suffering caused by the injury.

Typical personal injuries are caused by road traffic accidentsindustrial disease, falling on pavements and medical negligence. The more harm caused by the accident, and the longer lasting the effects of the injury, the higher the personal injury claims payout.

When working out how much you will get for your personal injury claim the court will also take into account any financial losses and expenses you have incurred as a result of your injury or illness.

The amount you are ultimately awarded will therefore depend on what your loss of income is throughout the duration of your injury, and what expenses you paid as a result of your injury, including: medical bills, transport fares to the hospital and any aids you have purchased to help you.
